Musketball from Historic Homestead Site 3D Model
Musketballs, made of lead, were used with muzzle-loading long guns with a flint- striking ignition mechanism. These type of long guns were common in the 17th, 18th, and 19th Century. This artifact was recovered near a known historic homesite near Maximo Point, Florida, and could have been used in hunting activities relating to the nearby historic settlement.
Musketballs are often encountered as historic archaeological material remains at sites, but have been often relegated to collections without an analyses or much in the way of examination. Using 3D documentation, these types of artifacts can be more readily seen and digitally explored to allow for comparisons, surface examiniation, and measurement, opening new potentials for archaeological research and understanding. Using the sketchfab platform, the public can also participate in the exploration of the past.
